De-evolution is Real

Having spent my formative years amidst the heady mix of synth driven pop, drooling punk rock, and second wave ska, I have always had a soft spot for Devo. Aside from the brilliant costumes and hooky new wave anthems, Devo has always been able to poke fun at sheep-like consumer culture in ways that are both smart and fresh, and their new campaign to crowd source the band's reintroduction is no exception. Check out these videos coming from Devo HQ.

  1. I have a flier from Devo from 1976... I was at an Aerosmith concert in Columbus Ohio and they were handing out these Xeroxed pages of their Theory of De-Evolution Manifesto - ransom-note style cut and paste type, maniacal ramblings... I'll have to see if I can dig it out and send you a copy!

  2. Starfish - Please do! I'd love to see that.
